Former White House Attorney General Bill Barr took aim at the 51 intelligence officials who falsely claimed that the Hunter Biden laptop story was a case of ‘Russian misinformation’ labeling them ‘Political Whores.’
As The Daily Wire reports:
Former Attorney General William Barr, asked by Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade why 51 intelligence officials published a letter just weeks before the 2020 election claiming that the New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s laptop “has the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation,” answered bluntly, “Because they’re political whores.”
“This was far more consequential than that,” Barr declared. “All the media platforms and the mainstream media essentially agreeing to keep this out of the news and keep the American people ignorant of business deals. Putting aside the issue of whether there was criminality — I’m not addressing that, but propriety, ethics, cashing in on the office. Potentially giving grounds for blackmail and so forth, of course the American people were entitled to know about that before the election.”
“And they said, ‘Well, it’s just disinformation,’” Kilmeade remarked. “What about the 51 intel experts, from Michael Hayden, who served in a Republican administration, to Leon Panetta, some guy that comes off as somewhat balanced, former Republican, former CIA director, to Mike Morell, all saying this is classic Russian disinformation. You never believed that. And why would 51 people, many very respected, put their name on a letter like that?”
“Because they’re political whores,” Barr said bluntly. “And it was wrong for them even to put out a letter because they didn’t know the facts. They had zero information; they did it as a political ploy to help Biden win the election.”
